In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite youth to plan a session to share with their parents what they have done in Riddle and Mystery. Share any ideas you have or plans you have made. Lead a brainstorm and record ideas on newsprint.
A gathering with parents can run as long as the group wishes and be held at any time. Parents might join you for half an hour following the religious education time or for half an hour before a worship service. Or, include a sixth grade youth-and-parents time as one activity in a congregational family night.
At the event, youth might perform a favorite WCUU segment, ask parents for their own thoughts about a big question or two, or share other activities from the program.
Be sure that the plans will involve all the youth. Make sure each youth has an opportunity to present something.
Avoid scheduling the gathering for a time when some youth might not have transportation, or when you think some parents' work schedules prevent them from coming.
